The inspiration for this card came from the lastest Gingersnaps Chestnut Theme Challenge GC53 which is 'Read' in celebration of National Crack a Book month. At the minute I'm reading The Red Wolf Conspiracy which is about the disappearance of an ancient and magical ship so this image from Digital Two for Tuesday was perfect for my project. I printed the image in sepia on some cream pearlescent card but for some reason it looks purple lol. The waves and stars are highlighted with sparkle EP. The 'scroll' is made from inked cocktail sticks and greaseproof paper stamped with text. The edges of the scroll and the background are distressed with sepia versafine, this weeks challenge at Crafty Cardmakers is distressing. I decided to follow the fab sketch from this weeks challenge at Papertake and decided I 'd use some nautical knots at the bottom of the image and along the side. I wasn't in the girl guides though so had to bodge some knots using garden string which I'd coloured with moonshadow ink.
Thanks for looking,
Have a good weekend
